Bio Photo I am a 60-something who has enjoyed the use of for a handful of years. Now getting into the DNA options slowly.

Lacking pics of my father's family for a photo book that went 5 generations back, I began looking for gravesite photos, and came into the use of that way even though the photos aren't always available for my Ancestry site.

My father's family has deep heritage in the colonization of America. My mother's family offers greater racial and ethnic diversity. So,

Hi, Anne
I'm so happy you jumped the land mass and found a home in a real good time frame.
I actually found a sibling to my great grandfather named Ulysses E Bonebrake. After reading the 1900 Census of Levi's home and him saying he has had eight children of which six are still alive and there was six alive and only seven found children. So that told me that he had a child that died that I didn't know about. So I got out the computor and made a timeline of his movements. I searched the 1870 Census and found that on the mortuary census records of the time 1870 and found a son in their household number and family number that had died one month prior to the Census. So I had a name and date of death and started to search graves in that township and low and behold, right next to Levi's mother Mary, was Ulysses and the tombstone says son of L.(Levi) & S. J.(Susan Jane) Bonebrake May 15 1868- May 13 1870. If not for the mortuary census I would not have found him. Are you confused yet.

Beinbrech, Daniel and Anna Translation Credit

Thanks to: ISLE REILING of Kansas State University. She is (before 1974) an instructor in German and specializes in ancient German dialects.
Their gravestones have been translated from High German to English. It is said that the family was stone carvers and that his son, Dewalt, might have carved them both. Additional credit for translation on Daniel Beinbrechs bio, Managed by: Anne S Wagner

RE: Hi, Lee (re: Beinbrecht/Beinbrech/Bonebrake)
Hello Ann,

My Mother was a Bonebrake. She was the daughter of Rev. Peter Oren Bonebrake, All names mentioned in my previous suggestion were desencants of his, either children or grandchildren.

I had another girl cousin that had the same problem with the name Bonebrake when she was in school.

Have you a copy of the Book by Marie Rizek Bonebrake, "Daniel Beinbrech his Ancestors and his Descendants" self published in 1990, she listed her address as 4115 N. La Linda Rama, Tucson, AZ 85718,
Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 90-60339. Marie may be deceased by now, I have not spoken to her in many years. She and her husband did substantial reserch in Germany and Switzerland.

RE: Daniel Beinbrech info . . .
I see by looking at other searches that there are conflicting dates. I believe the death date should be October not September, judging from the info on the stone. But the birthdate is tougher. One of the things I am concerned about with the 1732 date is the difference in age then between Daniel and his wife Anna which shows her being born in 1712. I could see 9 years difference but would think 20 years a little too much. I would think someone from a surrounding library or genealogy society would know of someone to translate the stone. I have a friend at home who is from Germany and translated a German journal that I have. If I could have a clear picture of the stone, I know she would try to translate it. You mentioned a German website. Is there a German website with info on it? If you can send me anything with the German writing I will send it on to my friend. Maybe easier to send to my email. I understand your dilemma! Cheri

You are welcome. I believe that family belongs together and you have added so much more than I ever could. I know you will take good care of her site.

Eleanor Beard.
Anne..I have changed the name on this memorial. I feel certain she was Eleanor and not Elizabeth.
Please review and I will repost any information you care to write and erase any which is confusing.
Please feel free to send me how you would write the bio and I will copy and paste.
When I really looked and re-read all of the family history it struck me as odd, no children were born before 1834 however they were married in 1821 and then children were born nearly every two years.
